Looking for some unique cards to use in kids yoga? Then check out the fun new Little Lotus Kids Yoga Cards 🙂
The Little Lotus Kids Yoga Card deck has 55 cards (39 illustrated yoga pose cards & 16 yoga game/partner pose cards with simple instructions and fun ideas in imagination “bubbles” on the back of each card) on 4 x 6 card stock with rounded corners packed full of fun!
Written by Tracy Johnson, RYT 200, yoga teacher at Yoga in the Valley & beautifully illustrated by artist Brenda Olson.
Here is a sneek peek at just a few of the cards….
I love the imagination idea bubbles on the back of each card! Here are a few of my faves: “Imagine the sun rising and filling you with energy”, “Imagine you are the moon looking down on the beautiful earth and smile!” & “Imagine you a baby bunny safe & warm in its rabbit hole”.
The “Gift Balloon” card encourages kids to think about someone in need and leads them through a guided imagery of gently breathing to fill a balloon up with all the things that person needs and it floating to that person.
Kids always love “Happy Baby” or “Sleeping Bug” pose. Multiply that fun by doing a group “Silly Centipedes” pose 🙂
Looking for a fun way to work on social skills or teamwork? The deck includes several cards (Teamwork, Silly Story, Sharing Circle, Musical Mats, Hum Circle, Ha Ha How Are You?, Siddhi Says, etc.) that would be fun to use in your groups 🙂
Looking for fun ways to work on vocabulary, expressive language & imaginative play? The deck includes fun cards (ABC Yoga, Animal Yoga – creating a story adventure, Picture Safari, The First Yogi, Floating on a Cloud, Eagle Eagle, etc.) that are a blast!
What makes these cards especially appealing and unique is the fun & quirky illustrations! They would appeal to young kids and even older tweens/teens and could inspire them to draw illustrations of their own as they invent their own yoga poses.
The only slight downside to the deck was the packaging. The clear plastic box is not very sturdy and may not stand up over time.
